Actually, Eric at EuroOptic told me yesterday that they have shipped a few out already. However, they don't expect a big shipment until July. So.....there are a few out there being shipped to customers. Let's hope one of those customers is a member here and will report their findings. I've also been anxiously awaiting the release of these rangefinding binos. I'm waiting to see the reports and reviews before deciding between these and the swaros.

I am one of the lucky people who had a tracking number in the email from Eric. We bought them at SCI. Can't wait till Tue. Tried both these and svaro's (been using Geovid's for a while) and had no reservations. In fact, my buddy who bought a pair as well owns Svaro's too, he felt the same way.

We received our 1st shipment this week (all went to fill pre-orders) and are expecting more deliveries every week or two moving forward

Re: Leica's New Geovid HD-B

It appears they are starting to trickle in, I see Cabelas has the 10x42 model listed as in stock. I guess I don't pay a ton of attention to when products hit after SHOT but July/August seems pretty late to get a hunting optic out that was at the SHOT to market. A lot of guys that are that serious about their optics want it in hand to work with well before August.

One would think that considering basically every generation we see of new ranging binocs from Zeiss/Swarovski/Leica tends to trump the other two as long as it's the newest generation they would not want to miss the bulk of a hunting season's sales while they were in that most recent generation slot. Should Swarovski/Zeiss come out with something new next year and they miss the bulk of sales this season I'd think that would be a pretty big dent in overall sales, but perhaps not. The Zeiss for instance has now been on the market since 2009, it wouldn't surprise me to see them release a new model next year. Especially since they are now well behind the light transmission curve with the new prisms others all appear to be going to. Though I'd be interested to see if those new prisms are giving up any resolution to gain all that light transmission, usually in optics you can't pick up that much light transmission without some trade off.
